In relation somewhat to the last article, trash is getting out of hand but with costly replacement ideas, it may be hard to switch to a new better means of product development. Before this article gets out of hand or judged in the first few seconds due to its topics just read it all the way through I promises I’ll try to make it as fact based as possible. Now there has been a lot of research into innovative ways to give us more environmentally friendly plastics. Right now, the best and most efficient idea is Hemp.
Let me make this as clear as possible. There is a major difference between Hemp and marijuana, or weed, or cannabis, or whatever you want to call it. Hemp is similar in nature to marijuana but has no Tetrahydrocannabinol or better known as THC in it. Which is the active drug in marijuana that gets people high. Now technically Hemp has somewhere in the range of 0.0% – 0.3% THC in it, but even at those levels, it is not enough to get a high from.
Let make two lists here, one about Hemp applications in the industrial sense and the other in the health sense.
Here is a list of all the applications that Hemp can be used for:
– Building materials.
– Solar panels.
– Food and Beverages.
– Chemical cleanups.
The best part is that Hemp is very easy to grow and grows fast with more plants per area then trees ultimately meeting a safer healthier product than what he have now.
Here is a list of the health benefits of the plants:
– Heart health.
– Skin health.
– Body Product.
I would give you a list of the Cons of Hemp but all I was able to find was that it will have to overcome major political barriers before we can start to see it become successful in our society. So, if you can, try and use company working towards Hemp production. That may seem difficult but there are many new company producing food with Hemp oils and seeds, as well clothing and home products. All you must do is google what you’re looking for and then the words “made with Hemp”, like “clothing made with Hemp”.
